Securing our future, preserving our past

The Venerable English College receives no independent source of income or funding from the Holy See, UK government or Church hierarchy. Apart from diocesan contributions for the training of seminarians, the College depends on generous donations and philanthropic support to cover its operating budget and for the preservation of its Archives and Heritage Collections.

There are many good reasons to consider making a gift or donation to the VEC. You will be helping to:

  • ensure the future security of the College and its ability to form clergy for England and Wales, and beyond
  • invest in a new generation of priests, young men determined to be good and holy disciples
  • foster a noble and heroic missionary tradition that reaches back almost 450 years
  • secure an unbroken link between Rome and Catholic England and Wales that has endured since Saxon times
  • protect a one-of-a-kind collection of archives and religious items and bring them to a wider audience
  • preserve and promote the memory of 44 martyrs for the Faith
